Oprah Winfrey a woman of courage and conviction. In addition she is rich and she has a big heart.

Oprah Winfrey for Senate Seat?

Why not? She runs a very successful business and is one of the most powerful women in this decade. We can sure use a business minded woman to run a political office. what worst can that be?

Oprah Winfrey reacts to Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich's assertion that he considered her to take over Barack Obama 's former senate seat -- and she also reveals how she feels about being in politics. Speaking on The Gayle King Show on SIRIUS XM'S Oprah & Friends channel, Oprah said, "I'm pretty amused by the whole thing.".The talk show host was speaking about comments made by Blagojevich during an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America.".Oprah told her good friend Gayle that she missed the GMA interview while she was exercising in the morning, but would have "fallen off the treadmill" if she had.[7] The case is focused on abuses of power by the governor. The pay-to-play allegations that surfaced after the governor�s Dec.[8] How could anyone of this standard be elected as governor is beyond any comprehension. Are IL voters all blind and sick to have supported him in the first place??[9]

No other Illinois governor has been impeached, let alone convicted in a Senate trial. It would take a two-thirds majority -- or 40 of the 59 senators -- to remove Blagojevich.[10] The House quickly voted 114-1 for impeaching the governor. That sent the case to the Senate, where it would take a two-thirds majority to convict Blagojevich and throw him out of office.[11] No other Illinois governor has been impeached, let alone convicted in a Senate trial.

At least that's what we understood from Oprah's reaction to the proposal that Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich made her. In his intervention the Governor has suggested Oprah Winfrey as one of the greatest replacement for Barack Obama's now-vacant spot in the Senate."Absolutely not," said Winfrey on Monday, after watching the talk-show.[13] I recorded all of the media circuit shows the Governor appeared on so I could analyze his verbal responses with his non verbal clues. Collectively, his answers didn't fit the non verbal clues and vice versa.[14]

She has been ranked the richest African American of the 20th century, the most philanthropic African American of all time, and was once the world's only black billionaire. She is also, according to some assessments, the most influential woman in the world.[16] Senate Bill 1738, which has bipartisan support and is currently before the Senate.Winfrey, a victim of child abuse, has long been an advocate of such safeguards. In 1991, she testified to establish a national database of convicted child abusers, which was signed into effect as "The Oprah Law" two years later.[17] We have until September 26, 2008 to get this bill passed by the senate. The bill would allocate the needed funds to further protect this nation's children.[18]

The TV generation made Barack Hussein Obama -- a man with minimal political history, a dubious voting record in his short time in the senate and ties to various anti-White, anti-American and militant Black organizations. The voters didn't care about that.[19] I would really like to see her do politics. She needs to quit with the show.[20]
